Easter 2018

After a few weeks of non-stop packing and cleaning and all the things that come with moving, I was so ready for a weekend with lots of family time!  I just love Easter and all the excitement that comes with it, the florals and the pretty colors and the weather finalllly warming up after a long winter!!

I will always remember this Easter as the one where we were between homes and were technically homeless, but thankfully had family who were sweet enough to take our entire circus in.  The girls bunny pajamas were packed far away in a storage unit and instead were replaced with mismatched tees & pants from a tote box, but of course they never knew they difference and thought the fact that the Easter bunny found us at Glamma’s house was about the coolest thing ever.  I will always remember this Easter as the one when after each egg hunt, Waverly divided up her eggs by color and saved most everything for later, and Avalon ate every single piece of candy from her eggs within three minutes.  And then tried to take Waverly’s.  And of course, I will always remember this Easter as the one where our third baby girl was in my belly, I cannot believe she will be crawling around for all the fun at this time next year.

Easter 2017

So I took a blogging break, completely unintentional, but it’s been a crazy (and fun!) couple of weeks our way.  Last week Waverly & I both had spring break, which was so much fun, and I can’t wait to share pictures!!!  But first, Easter.


We went to Asheville over break and didn’t get back until late Thursday night, so I couldn’t wait to fit in all the Easter things with the girls before the official holiday. Saturday night, we set out cookies (and carrots & ranch, per Waverly Maye) and just like Christmas, Waverly insisted that everyone go to bed immediately and without books so that the Easter bunny would come visit our house.  It was so funny, she looked me straight in the eye and said “mom seriously, do not go downstairs at all, you can’t even get ice cream”.   Because she knows I like to eat ice cream at night all by myself in my bed. 😉  All the while, Avalon couldn’t stop talking about how she “high-fived the bunny, but no hug”, when we saw him at a festival that day.  She was so proud.  Once they got up Sunday morning, they couldn’t wait to go downstairs and see if he came, the sight of them walking up to their baskets holding hands was so magical and just the sweetest ever.

Until they started arguing over who got the purple fairy wings and who got the pink.  Note to self, identical Easter baskets from here on out. 🙂

We had breakfast at our house and let the girls play outside, and then went to my sister’s for brunch with my family and an egg hunt.  The weather here was so good, way warmer than any other recent Easter holidays, so we loved getting to eat outside and it really feeling like spring!!!

After naps and a couple walks around the neighborhood, we had dinner and lots of dessert with my in-laws, Waverly & Avalon loved being able to play with their cousins and extend their sugar high just a little bit longer!  As I was putting the girls to bed, I couldn’t help but feel a little sad that another holiday had come and gone so quickly.  I know the days of our kids finding holidays so magical are numbered, and as exhausting as they sometimes can be, living them again through my kids eyes are one of my favorite parts of being a parent.  I always try my hardest to make each holiday so special and happy for them, but it really will never compare to how special they make it for me.

Hope you had a wonderful Easter and weekend with your family and loved ones!!! XO

    What a character! I love Waverly's rule of not going downstairs. That girl is seriously about the bunny and Santa. Ha ha! Sounds like a great weekend.
